Hello, World!

I'm Philly.

Thats me!

About Me

My name is Phillbert Neil Tan but people normally call me Philly. I'm currently a First Year student at 🎓 The University of British Columbia in the Bachelor of Arts program majoring in 🖥 Computer Science and minoring in 📈 Commerce.

Within UBC, I typically go to lecture mindlessly trusting the natural recursion while going about my classes. Otherwise, I'm currently in UBC Launch Pad -- UBC's Software Engineering club currently contributing to its in-house Slack Management bot, rocket2.

Outside of UBC, I'm the current DevOps Lead and a Fullstack Developer in Dashboard Philippines to help provide more up-to-date information amidst the quarantine life in the Philippines.

I'm also actively joining hackathons while I can such as Hack the North, DubHacks, and UBC's own nwHacks.

I've been coding since 7 years old and since then, my philosophy is to create for others and to create to learn. That is to realize that doing great is being able to help the lives of others in any way, shape, or form.

I hope to do well and to do great -- for and with others.

Latest Projects

Philippine Red Cross COVID-19 Platform

Lead Fullstack Developer (Remote Volunteer)

In collaboration with: McKinsey and Company, Philippine Bases Conversion and Development Authority, Philippine Coast Guard, Department of Health - Philippines, and more.

As of May 2020, the Philippine Red Cross is accounting to 45% of the COVID-19 testing in the Philippines. To further expedite the COVID-19 Testing process for patients, we've built the Philippine Red Cross COVID-19 Platform. This platform is aimed to further facilitate COVID-19 testing around the Philippine Red Cross and to automate repetitive tasks. We're working directly with Senator Richard "Dick" Gordon, Chairman of the Philippine Red Cross and his team to help patients get their results faster, increase data security, and to reduce human error.

Through the Philippine Red Cross, we're collaborating with Vince Dizon, president of the Philippine Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) and the folks at McKinsey and Company, a worldwide consulting firm to increase expanded COVID-19 testing in the Philippines and to incoming travellers.

We've also partnered with the Philippine Coast Guard to expedite testing in Airports. Through the launch of the electronic-based Case Investigation Forms, passengers wouldn't need to stay in airports for long unlike what was previously done (10-12 hours with a paper-based solution).
